Amazon Fire TV Cube will be on sale for $79.99 this Prime Day on October 13

Amazon has revealed several upcoming Prime Day deals and among the news is that the 2nd-gen Fire TV Cube will be $79.99 next week. This will be the new lowest price that Amazon’s flagship Fire TV model has ever been. In the past, the Fire TV Cube 2 has only ever dropped down to $89.99, so this upcoming sale beats that by $10. We don’t yet know if any of the Fire TV Sticks will be on sale. Amazon typically reveals only a small portion of the sales ahead of time, which they’ve done again here. To see all the upcoming deals that we know about, which include 6 different Fire TV Edition television models, be sure to check out my post here. As I do every year, I’ll be here around the clock during Prime Day to post all the best deals as they go live, so be sure to check back and check back often. Prime Day sales will be going live at 12am PT / 3am ET on October 13.

    Thought I was being clever buying used from Amazon last week for 76.00. Oh well, I saved 4.00 and it seems to be working perfectly. Still, I anticipated 89.99, not 79.99, so I would have waited.

    One question, does the cube support atmos for disney+ ?

    Netflix it does (in contrary to the 4k Stick) but disney+, I am not sure.
    Would be awesome if someone knows for sure :)

    I was looking at the Fire TV Cube homepage and since my Fire TV 1’s are linked to my account a pop-up asked if I wanted to “save even more” by trading in one of my FTV’s by October 31. Curious I clicked on it and it says it will take 20% off cube price plus give me a .99 e-credit (lol).
    Does anyone know from past experience if this will work on Prime Day?
    Right now 20% only brings the cube down to $96 not worth it yet.

    Elias,

    I’d appreciate your advice. I have a 1st Gen Cube. We rely solely on the Cube as the vehicle for all of our content (cut the cable cord this summer) so we are heavy users. We’re overall very happy with it. We have a Firestick on an upstairs TV that works just fine, but we had toyed with the idea of getting another Cube. We’d move the 1st Gen to that TV and replace it with the 2nd Gen. For us, this is a “nice to have”. All that aside, do you think that the 2nd Gen is enough of a step up from the 1st Gen to jus3tify the upgrade?

    • It’s a tough call because on one side, the Cube 2 is a huge performance upgrade over the Cube 1, but on the other side, the features and capabilities between the two are identical.

      I’m advising a close friend to upgrade from a Cube 1 to a Cube 2 during this Prime Day because their household watches a lot of streaming all through the one Fire TV Cube, so they’ll literally see the benefits of upgrading for multiple hours every single day. That said, if your household isn’t a heavy TV watcher and when you do watch it’s just in a single app that you’re not having any issues with, you’re probably not going to notice much of a difference with the upgrade.

        Elias,

        Thanks. I picked one up and the performance is clearly better, boots/loads faster, channel guide and Pluto/Philo/OTA channels I have a Recast) load noticeably faster. That said, it does seem to have a few bugs, some lockups and unexplained returns to the home screen. On really odd issue that I have yet to solve for is with one of the OTA channels, a CBS affiliate. The main channel is 6.1 and it doesn’t come in…signal strength is “unavailable” in the channel list, and when selected it pops up and just tries and tries to load, never does. Channels 6.2, .3 and .4 all load fine with “good” signal strength. I’ve concluded that it has to be a problem with the Cube itself since it works fine on the Gen 1 I replaced. Here’ the really odd thing. If while it’s trying to load, I unplug the HDMI from the TV and plug it back in, poof, on it comes. However, if I then go in and switch to a different OTA channel, and then try to go back to the CBS channel, the problem is back. I’m trying to figure out why pulling the HDMI out and then putting back in would do anything. ;-)

    BTW, this is already on sale if you use Alexa to order: “Only $79.99 when you order with Alexa. Just say, “Alexa, order a Fire TV Cube.””

      I saw that. I want to trade in a device though. I have a Fire TV box that I’m no longer using since I bought my 1st gen cube in 2018 and I can trade it in (reluctantly as I love it’s features, especially the expandable memory).

  6. Nate says:

    Aside from renaming the wake word for Alexa on the cube, is there any way to stop interruptions from Alexa appearing on screen while watching a show? E.g. I have a dedicated Echo in the same room as my cube and ask Alexa to turn off the lights, can I stop Alexa from defaulting on my cube versus my Echo? I wasn’t sure if there was any way to separate commands specific to video playback to the cube only as of yet.
